In China the weather has four distinct seasons - a pleasant warm spring, a hot rainy summer, a comfortable cool autumn and a cold winter. The hottest time in China comes in July and August, with more than 10 days at temperatures above 35 C. The coldest time is from the late January to early February. The spring from March to May is recommended as the best time to travel to China. Summer which also sees heavy rainstorms late in the season is surprisingly the peak season.

Lying on the eastern end of China Silkroad, Xian is a kaleidoscope of culture and history to some of the most impressive sites of China, while Beijing is known for the best preserved imperial palaces and sections of the Great Wall. Unravel the tales of the two capitals in this week long itinerary.

  2. Days 1-4: Beijing

    Your journey starts in the metropolis of Beijing, where you will stay for three nights. Delve into the rich history of Beijing and witness the grandeur of the Imperial Palace - the Forbidden City. Stop at Tiananmen Square which has seen some of the most dramatic chapters of China history. Wander along the narrow alleyways of the Hutongs and visit the Temple of Heaven, considered as one of the top leading worship sites of Beijing.

  3. Days 4-5: Great Wall

    A trip to Beijing is never complete without the Great Wall of China. Get a choice to visit different sections of the wall but we recommend Jinshanling section where it is less crowded and offers a tranquil walk into the raw and unspoilt beauty of the Great Wall.
